Earlier, we reported former Vincor International Inc. president and chief executive officer Don Triggs had been appointed a BC Hydro Corp. director. But he's not the only wine industry member with a stake in the energy business. Former Vincor Western Canada government and industry relations vice-president Harry McWatters joined Terasen Inc. board of directors on November 1, 2007. Mr. McWatters, who founded Sumac Ridge Estate Winery and sold it to Vincor in 2000, is also a Fortis Inc. and FortisBC Inc. board member, having been appointed to those posts in May 2007 and September 2005 respectively. Like Mr. Triggs, Mr. McWatters - who has chaired FortisBC since June 1, 2006 - also has a relationship with former provincial small business and revenue minister Rick Thorpe, having been his constituency association president. Fortis is Terasen's parent company.
